Frenchy's Cassette Tape - The Art of Flying

Frenchy taught my father to fly and my mom and I were taking lessons when Frenchy passed away. I only had about 8 hours in my log and was 16 or 18 years old. (1976 or 1978 I think). I never took another lesson because I couldn't imagine someone telling me to fly over a VOR to watch the From/To flag switch. But, I still have the cassette tape Frenchy gave me to learn his Art of Flying. Does anyone remember this? Contact me if you would like to listen to it. niahartman@icloud.com

I remember Frenchie

In around 1968 I cleaned Frenchie's planes (two Cessna 150's and a 172) for flying lessons. I was 13 I remember his grandson, his stories and all the fun people who learned from him !

Frenchies Flying School

Does anyone remember Arthur Plante AKA "Frenchy"? I learned to fly at No. Perry in 1968 at Frenchie's Flying School. He had stories that would keep you enthralled for hours together with his wife Bea. He had a unique style of teaching and if you couldn't learn from him, then you weren't cut out to fly. I still have my solo shirt with the tail cut off! He came with me on the first flight after I overhauled my 1947 Talorcraft BC12D. He asked me if I had done all the work properly and I said, yes I had and he said, we will find out! He did loops and rolls and spins and then told me I did a good job, and all this with an A65 engine. Great memories.

Homwe of Pelican Airways

I spent a beautiful sunny and humid rainy time at North Perry Airport were I passed my private pilot license in the 90's. I will never forget the British couple being the bosses of that unique flying school...
